I think President Donald Trump has it all wrong about kneeling.

If he went to a Catholic church, he would genuflect before entering the pew, and at times he would kneel during the service. When I was young, I knelt at my Lutheran church when receiving communion. Muslims not only kneel but put their heads on the floor in the mosque.

Kneeling before kings and queens is a sign of respect.

So why is kneeling during football games a show of disrespect for our country? It seems to me it’s even more respectful.
